About this event

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and part of the Old King’s Head Project, Heritage Lincolnshire has been working with some incredible volunteers to develop a Walking Tour for you to join us on to explore and discover Kirton, King's Head and then afterwards some cake!!!

Join us as we give guided talks around Kirton and let you know about the 16th Century Coaching Inn that Heritage Lincolnshire has lovingly restored over the past five years to learn about the property, it’s history and key facts. The inn is a rare example of the Fenland Artisan Mannerist style, a building technique which reveals a unique history of the ebb and flow of Britain’s people. The Old King’s Head tells us about the forgotten importance of the road from London to Boston, once a hub for those who traded, travelled and warred by sea. To find out more about the project please go to https://www.heritagelincolnshire.org/projects/the-old-kings-head

Then take a walk around the village with us discovering all about the Potato King, historic war figures and Dame Sarah Swift plus lots more! Kirton, now a small village was once a hectic town, the third largest settlement in the county. The history of the Old King’s Head and its custodians reflect the cultural heritage of the local area, prosperous landlords, vigorous rivalries, between the church, barmen and even their own clientele!

Then join us in the cafe for a cup of tea or coffee, and a slice of homemade delicious cake as part of your ticket price. To purchase the ticket directly please go to our online shop: https://www.heritagelincolnshire.org/shop/
